comment on the article

please, please, please don't go. i know we have our fair share of brainless fans but doesn't every club. i THANKYOU for all you have done for our club. however, if you do go i totally understand as if i were in your position (although i love birmingham) i TOO would go. i suppose all you have to do is read some of the posters comments on here to realise it's best to turn your back on us. we don't deserve your backing anymore. i for one, am very ashamed at the scenes today. mr gold sorry that they near enough reduced you to tears as well. if it's any consolation i for one would lke to say THANKYOU. whatever club gets your support they are very, very lucky. PLEASE BLUES FANS ADD YOUR SUPPORT.

Let sullivan go. I was at the game and indeed on the pitch and i can tell you it was directed mainly at sullivan. Look at randy learner he gave every vile fan a 40 shirt with melberg on the back and thanks for everything on the front. What do blues get clap bangers which don't get me wrong are very good for the atmosphere but there about the only thing we have got this season. Sunderland spent 45,000,000 on players and the result is they stay up we have spent 5,000,000 and look where we are. If the board go it will be hard to get somone else but wasnt mittel intreasted.

Yes, Birmingham have paid fully for breaking Eduardo`s leg.Players and board without human feeling. Thank God nobody would break anybody`s leg again in the premiership

===================================

Mittal's got a 20% share at QPR now with Ecclestone and Briartore so he won't buy us.

Keep the board as they keep us financially stable and we won't do a Leeds under them. But after the events of yesterday, they know they have to spend big money next time we get promoted to give us a chance of staying up.

thats the problem daveBCFC, the board had promised time and time agains the last time went down that they had learnt from the mistakes of not spending big that season and would not make the same istakes again, that they would spend big. It hasn't happened and its pissed people off

I'm not a Birmingham fan but is Alex Mcleish over his head? It would appear that there is a big difference between managing Glasgow Rangers and managing in the Premier Division. What's the chances of him being around at the beginning of the next season?

I'm afraid I have very little time for Sullivan, he was interviewed some time ago and he felt compelled to tell the interviewer how his own fave team was not Birmingham City, I can't remember who he supported now but it might have been Cardiff? he is also listed on wikipedia as "David Sullivan (born February 1, 1949) is a British porn baron and newspaper proprietor. Since 1986 he has been the owner of the Daily Sport and Sunday Sport." and that to me says it all.

He has done little to help the club IMO, his reputation is in the sleaze industry and I just don't see his position at Blues as a favourable one to the team or the city. Birmingham have struggled for many years and Ok, maybe his injection of cash has helped but I am afraid that quite simply there is something seriously amiss at the club and has been for some years.

The potential of the club has never really been exploited bu Sullivan or Gold. I do not agree with the abuse but I can understand why people are so angry, lets face it if they go, we have nothing to lose, I just cannot see us doing any better than mediocre while under this management.

I do honestly believe it's time for them to move on, if they can find a buyer... Jasper Carrot anyone? (LOL) the sad thing is that they say "if they can find a buyer" but they have to make sure the club is not overpriced so as to put off maybe a more genuinely loyal investor, I personally think that Gold is genuine and Sullivan is not.

That's my opinion and I would love to see Gold stay and Sullivan leave, that is also the thoughts of many other long time suffering Blues fans. But it should not be turned into a hate campaign!

I know majson. I know many blues fans who are fed up with the board and I don't blame em tbh. There wasn't a mass protest last time we went down but after yesterday, I think the board will wake up and smell the coffee - that they have to be ambitious or leave. You have to give credit to the board for the way have revived BCFC but when we next get promoted, it's time for them to show some bottle and spend.
